This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

De-Nuke Iran!

De-nuke Iran! The declaration reads:

We, the undersigned, declare that the American government and all free nations must act with speed, determination, and muscle to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran. Now. By any means necessary. Before it's too late.
4200 have endorsed the declaration. I am one of them. Will you join us?

The Mullahs who run Iran believe that, by initiating Armageddon, they will provoke the appearance of their messiah, the Mahdi, who will finish their Islamic world conquest. When they obtain a nuke, they will use it. We must not let that happen!

Consider the consequences of a 10KT blast on any Jewish city. Consider the consequences on any American city. Consider the consequences of an EMP attack. Let Iran obtain the bomb and one or more of those evils is a guaranteed certainty. It will happen!

The banner at DeNukeIran.com says "Stand up, speak out, be counted, raise Hell, De-Nuke Iran before it's too late." Click the link above and sign the declaration. Follow up by copying this blog post, paste it into an email and send it to your family, friends and associates with an exhortation to follow suit.
This campaign won't succeed unless we make it succeed; lets do it!

Express Support for BiBi

United For Israel has initiated an email campaign in support of Israel's Prime Minister. This presents us with an opportunity to let Benjamin Netanyahu know that, despite the anti-Israeli stance of the Obama Administration and mass media, a significant number of Americans reject the so called two state solution. The text of their missive follows.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,

I want you to know that along with millions of other Americans I am strongly opposed to the Saudi Road Map, and the arbitrary introduction of a terrorist anti-Jewish/Christian (dhimmi) Palestinian state within the heartland of Israel.

Not only would such an entity endanger Israel, but it would advance the front-line of radical Islamic ideology, making the United States and eventually all of western civilization more vulnerable to a global Islamic caliphate.

There are a multitude of other reasons for this conclusion, not least of which is that such an entity would further destabilize the Middle East - economically, educationally, militarily and politically (since the PA leadership is controlled by Hamas and Fatah terrorist organizations). Moreover, such an entity should not emerge without a wise and responsible leadership that would recognize Israel as a Jewish state. There are other non-threatening alternatives being advanced that can be implemented.

If radical elements could be dispersed throughout the Arab world, instead of concentrated in one area such as happened in Gaza, they would be less of a security risk to their neighbors and to other nations of the world, Arab and non-Arab alike.

Prime Minister Netanyahu, I again want to stress that you have a huge following of Americans who hope you will remain strong in defense of an undivided Israel. We are with you l00% and will stand with you as you stand for Israel`s safety and security.

As usual, I will make a few minor edits before sending that email because my own views are somewhat more radical than those of UFI. I realize that they are building a contact list for fund raising. I can't send them money, but I can spread the word, and I appreciate the informative emails they send. I hope that many of my readers will see fit to join in this email campaign by clicking this link to send an email to BiBi, President Obama, Secretary of State Clinton and 25 members of the Knesset. .

The Saudi Plan & Road Map have this in common: they demand that Israel cede territory in return for empty promises. Ceding land is permanent, promises are transient. Muslims do not negotiate in good faith; they never performed their commitments undertaken at Oslo or any subsequent negotiation. They will never be satisfied with any area of land less than the entire world. Aggression & terrorism should be punished, not rewarded.

Stop Funding Terrorists!

The Unity Coalition for Israel is soliciting emails in protest of military aid to Falestine. They want us to send this message to President Obama, the Cabinet and Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu.

Letter to President Barack Obama

Dear Mr. President,

I am concerned that we have been squandering U.S. taxpayer dollars by assisting the Palestinian Authority with vast sums of money used to train Palestinians to kill. In addition to the $900 million your Administration offered the Palestinians on March 2, your training of 1,500 new Palestinian soldiers is costing American taxpayers another $161 million. During our severe financial crisis, our hard-earned tax dollars should be directed to more worthwhile causes in the U.S.

The funding lavished on the Palestinian Authority will not fulfill the domestic needs of the Palestinian people because there has never been, and probably never will be, any badly needed PA accountability. Both Hamas and Fatah are terrorist organizations that detest America and revile everything for which the United States stands. And yet they are in charge of the Palestinian Authority in Gaza and Judea and Samaria and they are the ones reaping the benefit of U.S. aid.

In addition to the $900 million your Administration offered the Palestinians on March 2, your training of 1,500 new Palestinian soldiers is costing American taxpayers another $161 million, money that would be better spent helping Americans during this current recession.

Lt. General Keith Dayton, U.S. security coordinator for Israel and the PA, insists that the "new men [receiving U.S. training]... are on a mission to create a new Palestinian State." These are in addition to thousands of men already trained by the U.S. since the creation of the Palestinian Authority (PA) in 1994.

I implore you to stop training these Palestinian terrorists. This policy is not in the best interest of either the U.S. or Israel!

Abu Yusef, a member of the PA Chairman`s own security unit - Force 17, has an unambiguous view of this American military training of the Palestinians: "The operations of the Palestinian resistance would [not] have been so successful and would not have killed more than 1,000 Israelis since 2000 and defeated the Israelis in Gaza without [American military] trainings," he boasted in an interview in August 2007. "All the methods and techniques that we studied in these trainings, we applied against the Israelis... with US-trained snipers targeting Israeli settlers and soldiers.” The special intelligence training they received from the U.S. instructors helped them "collect information on the movements of soldiers and settlers... [determining] the best timing to infiltrate our bombers inside Israel." Abu Yusef specified: "We used weapons and we produced explosives, and of course the trainings we received from the Americans and the Europeans were a great help to the resistance."

Why is the Obama Administration determined to further expedite this training? We need to hear the answer loud and clear!

In addition, there is no possible justification for blocking Israel`s request for advanced U.S. attack helicopters, denying our firm ally Israel a strong defense against the very warfare we are currently PAYING FOR. This policy is counterproductive to our support of our democratic ally and instead favors the enemies of Western civilization and the free world. This schizophrenic policy must stop!

The newly pledged international aid to the Palestinians would amount to $1,125- $1,300 dollars to each of the 4 million Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza. This is on top of hundreds of millions of dollars in "humanitarian aid" sent to Hamas controlled Gaza by Israel, the U.S., European Union (EU), Saudi Arabia, Iran and other international organizations since December 2008.

Despite all this money pouring into the PA, Israel`s daily newspaper, Ha`aretz, on May 26th, the very day of your visit with PA leader Abbas, quoted PA representative Ahmed Qureia (Abu Ala), boasting "It`s not fair to demand that we recognize you [Israel] as the state of the Jewish people...Our refusal is adamant." President Obama, why did you not demand that the Palestinian Authority recognize the State of Israel? Why are you now insisting U.S. taxpayers finance yet another losing Palestinian venture – a Palestinian terrorist state in the heartland of Israel?

As an American taxpayer, I strongly protest this dangerous U.S. support of international terrorism.

You say, Mr. President, that one country, the U.S., does not have the right to prevent another country (Iran) from becoming nuclear. Likewise it must follow that the U.S. does not have the right to prevent another country (Israel) from protecting itself from a nuclear attack. I respectfully ask that you permit Prime Minister Netanyahu to support his democracy and that you concentrate on supporting ours.

I am in complete agreement with that missive, except for one word and its derivatives. Genuine Palestinians are Jews, not Muslim Arabs.
Please join me in endorsing and sending the email by clicking here: http://www.israelunitycoalition.org/aa/alert.php?id=43 . Wasting taxes is bad enough; funding the enemy is treason. I can't stop it, but I can protest, and I can exhort others to join in protesting against wasteful treason.

There is something else you can do: sign the Defund HAMAS petition and send its url to your Congressman & Senators. Educating the Congress about this vital issue may be the most effective act we can take to stop the travesty of subsidizing the enemy.

EPA: Put a Cork in It!

The EPA is about to rule that CO2 is a pollutant. Americans for Prosperity is organizing an email campaign to oppose the proposed rule. CO2 is a byproduct of baking, brewing, burning almost any fuel and living. We can't breath without releasing CO2 into the atmosphere. If they can regulate it, they can punish us for everything we do, even for living.

Once this "endangerment finding" has been reached, the EPA will be empowered to advance carbon dioxide regulations to their heart's content. But even if they wanted to take the severe economic impact of this proposal into account, they can't. Once the endangerment finding is final, they would be compelled to work aggressively to eliminate it across the economy.
One lawsuit by a fringe environmental group could bring our economy to a standstill.

Please click this link to tell the EPA to cork itself.

Obamination: Scripture Quotes from Cairo

I have discovered through other blogs and search engine statistics that I should have given more attention to the scripture quotes in President Barack Hussein Obama's speech to the "Muslim World" at Cairo University. I hope that this post will correct that oversight.

As the Holy Koran tells us, "Be conscious of God and speak always the truth."
A search of the Hilali & Khan translation did not turn up any matches. I also struck out at http://www.quranbrowser.com. I returned to the Noble Qur'an, searching first for truthful, and within the results for remember Allah. Since the method I use searches several volumes at once, I sorted them by source document. Matches were found in the following Surahs:
  • 2
  • 3
  • 7
  • 26
  • 33
  • 62
Searching those chapters did not disclose any relevant verses. I next tried "the truth" as the primary search key, finding matching records in these Surahs:
  • 2
  • 3
  • 4
  • 7
  • 26
  • 33
This search produced one relevant ayat, which I present with context.
  • 33:60. If the hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease (evil desire for adultery, etc.), and those who spread false news among the people in Al­Madinah, cease not, We shall certainly let you overpower them, then they will not be able to stay in it as your neighbours but a little while.

    33:61. Accursed, wherever found, they shall be seized and killed with a (terrible) slaughter.

    33:62. That was the Way of Allâh in the case of those who passed away of old, and you will not find any change in the Way of Allâh.

    33:63. People ask you concerning the Hour, say: "The knowledge of it is with Allâh only. What do you know? It may be that the Hour is near!"

    33:64. Verily, Allâh has cursed the disbelievers, and has prepared for them a flaming Fire (Hell).

    33:65. Wherein they will abide for ever, and they will find neither a Walî (a protector) nor a helper.

    33:66. On the Day when their faces will be turned over in the Fire, they will say: "Oh, would that we had obeyed Allâh and obeyed the Messenger (Muhammad )."

    33:67. And they will say: "Our Lord! Verily, we obeyed our chiefs and our great ones, and they misled us from the (Right) Way.

    33:68. Our Lord! give them double torment and curse them with a mighty curse!"

    33:69. O you who believe! Be not like those who annoyed Mûsa (Moses), but Allâh cleared him of that which they alleged, and he was honourable before Allâh.

    33:70. O you who believe! Keep your duty to Allâh and fear Him, and speak (always) the truth.
  • 33:71. He will direct you to do righteous good deeds and will forgive you your sins. And whosoever obeys Allâh and His Messenger he has indeed achieved a great achievement (i.e. he will be saved from the Hell-fire and made to enter Paradise).

In the preceding ayat, we discover that Moe was cursing hypocrites, declaring that they will be slaughtered and damned. The succeeding ayeh holds a great clue for us: "righteous good deeds". What are good deeds?
  • 4:57. But those who believe (in the Oneness of Allâh - Islâmic Monotheism) and do deeds of righteousness, We shall admit them to Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise), abiding therein forever. Therein they shall have Azwâjun Mutahharatun [purified mates or wives (having no menses, stools, urine, etc.)] and We shall admit them to shades wide and ever deepening (Paradise) .
  • 48:29. Muhammad is the Messenger of Allâh, and those who are with him are severe against disbelievers, and merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and falling down prostrate (in prayer), seeking Bounty from Allâh and (His) Good Pleasure. The mark of them (i.e. of their Faith) is on their faces (foreheads) from the traces of (their) prostration (during prayers). This is their description in the Taurât (Torah). But their description in the Injeel (Gospel) is like a (sown) seed which sends forth its shoot, then makes it strong, it then becomes thick, and it stands straight on its stem, delighting the sowers that He may enrage the disbelievers with them. Allâh has promised those among them who believe (i.e. all those who follow Islâmic Monotheism, the religion of Prophet Muhammad till the Day of Resurrection) and do righteous good deeds, forgiveness and a mighty reward (i.e. Paradise).

Those admitted to the Gardens are those who join the Jihad. See 61:10-13. righteous good deeds is a code phrase for aggressive war!

Robert Spencer asserts that the quote belongs to 9:119.
  • 9:119. O you who believe! Be afraid of Allâh, and be with those who are true (in words and deeds) .

    9:120. It was not becoming of the people of Al-Madinah and the bedouins of the neighbourhood to remain behind Allâh's Messenger (Muhammad when fighting in Allâh's Cause) and (it was not becoming of them) to prefer their own lives to his life. That is because they suffer neither thirst nor fatigue, nor hunger in the Cause of Allâh, nor they take any step to raise the anger of disbelievers nor inflict any injury upon an enemy but is written to their credit as a deed of righteousness. Surely, Allâh wastes not the reward of the Muhsinûn
There is plenty of redundancy in the Qur'an and both cited contexts ultimately convey the same message. Since the President did not cite the Surah & ayeh numbers, we are at liberty to speculate.
The Holy Koran teaches that whoever kills an innocent is as -- it is as if he has killed all mankind. (Applause.) And the Holy Koran also says whoever saves a person, it is as if he has saved all mankind. (Applause.)
  • 5:32. Because of that We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land - it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind. And indeed, there came to them Our Messengers with clear proofs, evidences, and signs, even then after that many of them continued to exceed the limits (e.g. by doing oppression unjustly and exceeding beyond the limits set by Allâh by committing the major sins) in the land!.

    5:33. The recompense of those who wage war against Allâh and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter.
For some reason, Muslims and their apologists never quote 5:33. Can you guess why?
The Holy Koran tells us: "O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another."
  • 49:13. O mankind! We have created you from a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honourable of you with Allâh is that (believer) who has At-Taqwa [i.e. one of the Muttaqûn (pious - see V.2:2)]. Verily, Allâh is All-Knowing, All-Aware.

    49:14. The bedouins say: "We believe." Say: "You believe not but you only say, 'We have surrendered (in Islâm),' for Faith has not yet entered your hearts. But if you obey Allâh and His Messenger, He will not decrease anything in reward for your deeds. Verily, Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."

    49:15. Only those are the believers who have believed in Allâh and His Messenger, and afterward doubt not but strive with their wealth and their lives for the Cause of Allâh. Those! They are the truthful.

    49:16. Say: "Will you inform Allâh about your religion? While Allâh knows all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth, and Allâh is All-Aware of everything.

The Talmud tells us: "The whole of the Torah is for the purpose of promoting peace."
This question turns up at Free Republic: Why Couldn’t Obama’s Speechwriters Find a “Peace” Quote from the Koran?
Of course, its because they don't use the chm file I compiled. A search for "make peace" turns up one match:
  • 49:9. And if two parties or groups among the believers fall to fighting, then make peace between them both, but if one of them rebels against the other, then fight you (all) against the one that which rebels till it complies with the Command of Allâh; then if it complies, then make reconciliation between them justly, and be equitable. Verily! Allâh loves those who are equitable.

    49:10. The believers are nothing else than brothers (in Islâmic religion). So make reconciliation between your brothers, and fear Allâh, that you may receive mercy.
Peace is between Muslims only.
  • 47:35. So be not weak and ask not for peace (from the enemies of Islâm), while you are having the upper hand. Allâh is with you, and will never decrease the reward of your good deeds.

The Holy Bible tells us: "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God."
One of those words occurs in the Qur'an, but not in the same context. Surah Al-Baqarah begins by defining believers. For context, I begin with an ayat which points out the fact that participation in Jihad is a prime test of believers. Note the phrases I have emphasized.
  • 2:3. Who believe in the Ghaib and perform As-Salât (Iqâmat-as-Salât), and spend out of what we have provided for them [i.e. give Zakât , spend on themselves, their parents, their children, their wives, etc., and also give charity to the poor and also in Allâh's Cause - Jihâd, etc.].

    2:4. And who believe in (the Qur'ân and the Sunnah) which has been sent down (revealed) to you (Muhammad Peace be upon him ) and in [the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel), etc.] which were sent down before you and they believe with certainty in the Hereafter. (Resurrection, recompense of their good and bad deeds, Paradise and Hell, etc.).

    2:5. They are on (true) guidance from their Lord, and they are the successful.

    2:6. Verily, those who disbelieve, it is the same to them whether you (O Muhammad Peace be upon him ) warn them or do not warn them, they will not believe.

    2:7. Allâh has set a seal on their hearts and on their hearings, (i.e. they are closed from accepting Allâh's Guidance), and on their eyes there is a covering. Theirs will be a great torment.

    2:8. And of mankind, there are some (hypocrites) who say: "We believe in Allâh and the Last Day" while in fact they believe not.

    2:9. They (think to) deceive Allâh and those who believe, while they only deceive themselves, and perceive (it) not!

    2:10. In their hearts is a disease (of doubt and hypocrisy) and Allâh has increased their disease. A painful torment is theirs because they used to tell lies.

    2:11. And when it is said to them: "Make not mischief on the earth," they say: "We are only peacemakers."

    2:12. Verily! They are the ones who make mischief, but they perceive not.

Carbon Tax Petition

I received the following email from American Solutions today. For some of my readers, this is a new issue. For others, it something they have read about and ignored. We can not afford to ignore the Carbon Tax!

Signing the petition is not enough. We need to tell our Representatives and Senators that their days in office are numbered if they pass the Carbon Tax or any variation thereof into law.

Do not ignore this issue unless:

  1. you can afford a 74% increase in the price of motor fuel
  2. you can afford a similar increase in the price of every consumer product that is manufactured or transported
  3. you can afford massive increases in your utility bills
  4. your friends and neighbors can afford it as well as you can.
  5. you, your friends and neighbors will be able to afford it after you lose your jobs in Obama's Depression which the Carbon Tax will aggravate.
Take action now, while the Carbon Tax issue is fresh in your mind:
  • sign the petition
  • go to http:\\www.congress.org, enter your Zip Code, click the Federal Officials link and tell your Representative & Senators to vote HELL NO!!! on "Cap and Trade", no matter how it is modified or disguised.
Speaker Gingrich would tell you to be polite. I won't. This is a vital issue which threatens our personal budgets and the national economy. The power and money grab absolutely must be stopped, with extreme prejudice so that it will never rise again!

Gas prices are climbing - with a 20 percent jump in the past month alone. Unbelievably, the Left is pushing a bill that would drive energy prices higher.

They call it cap and trade, but it's just a new energy tax. They think tackling climate change requires regulating the energy use of every individual and business in America, and that if energy costs more, you'll use less. But that's not a solution, it's a recipe for another summer of $4 a gallon gas.

So we've started the "5 for 5: Stop the Energy Tax Challenge" to get the facts out.

Please read the 5 facts, sign the petition, and forward this to 5 friends, urging them to do the same.

Think about it - how would these added expenses affect you, and your family? This new energy tax would:

  1. Raise inflation-adjusted gasoline prices by 74 percent
  2. Raise electricity rates 90 percent after adjusting for inflation
  3. Raise the cost of living of a typical household by $1,600 a year
  4. Raise residential natural gas prices by 55 percent
  5. Destroy 1-3 million jobs per year, every year until 2035

This new energy tax is neither an energy nor an environmental solution. It's a tax. And nobody thinks they're under-taxed.

Roll Call is reporting that Nancy Pelosi wants this passed by the Fourth of July recess. So, we must move fast.

Please sign the Stop the Energy Tax petition, and then forward this email to 5 people, urging them to do the same. We also have a "Tell-a-Friend" tool at the bottom of the petition page that you can use.

Together, we'll make the politicians listen - and act.

Your friend,

Newt Gingrich
